New hosted option gives security analysts full platform benefits in a SaaS model
LogRhythm this week introduced a cloud-based version of its NextGen Security Information and Event Management platform, which promises full security monitoring, management, and automation functionality with fewer infrastructure headaches.
The Lowdown: The new LogRhythm Cloud isn’t a stripped down version of the vendor’s on-premises SIEM offering, officials stressed. Rather, LogRhythm Cloud includes all of the features of its on-prem sibling, such as machine-based analytics and embedded security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) functionality.
The Details: With minimal setup and no ongoing hardware or software maintenance to worry about, LogRhythm Cloud users get subscription-based access to all the requisite SIEM collection, detection, and analysis capabilities, as well as advanced security program management features such as incident response playbooks, case management, integrated threat intelligence feeds, and workflow automation.
The Buzz: “Solution maintenance is never on my mind when using LogRhythm Cloud. It just runs,” said Kevin Merolla, security manager at Chart Inc. “Instead of spending my first week setting up new hardware and software, I identified a new production use case. It was so valuable that we’re implementing the same technique across multiple other networks.”
“We designed LogRhythm Cloud to deliver customers our full breadth of battle-tested next-gen SIEM platform capabilities when it comes to detecting advanced threats and ensuring the most rapid response possible,” said Chris Petersen, co-founder and chief product and technology officer at LogRhythm. “Unlike some other vendor solutions, which are functionally limited when compared to their on-prem offering, LogRhythm Cloud provides the same feature set and user experience our customers have come to love and rely on. We are confident LogRhythm Cloud is the most complete and powerful next-gen SIEM-as-a-service offering in the market today.”
